Metabolic Tumor Volume of [18F]-Fluorodeoxyglucose Positron Emission Tomography/Computed Tomography Predicts Short-Term Outcome to Radiotherapy With or Without Chemotherapy in Pharyngeal Cancer
Clinical Cancer Research
Purpose: This study aimed to investigate whether metabolic tumor volume (MTV) measured from [ 18 F]-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography (FDG-PET/CT) predicts short-term outcome to radiotherapy with or without chemotherapy and disease-free survival (DFS) in patients with pharyngeal cancers. Experimental Design: The MTVs of primary sites with or without neck nodes were measured in 82 patients. Short-term outcome was assessed using the treatment response evaluationdoi:10.1158/1078-0432.ccr-08-3290 pmid:19737951 fatcat:aackcvga2fhazlp3nkfm7tnlh4
